oooh, I do remember that.  Where did I put it????  I don't like altoids but I do love little containers.  I like having a little pin cushion in each project and at each place I sew.    The box I'm using currently is a nice box, but it's not very deep and my extra pincushions are too big.  I may just make a little pillow type one.

Yes if had to move them back and forth over the years. Lol. He was taught very young how the sew on buttons, hem pants and sew up holes in his shirts. His Grandmother was a desist and quilter. She taught all of her grandkids to embroidery!  Each one was given a piece of fabric and asked to make a picture on it.  She gave them ideas etc. then she made a quilt with all of them, by hand of course since Toby was the oldest, he received it after she passed. Every child in the family slept under it for years. 
it’s in need of repair, I think I’ll work on that for him as a gift.

And they were so cute!!  Even if mine was pink!

Well, I've been off a while. I've been busy organizing things, painting furiture, and working on stuff for my sewing room. I've almost finished and will show you pix. I also decided to go thru all my old quilt magazines and just take out the ones I like, putting them in sleeves. This shrunk my bookshelves a ton. I know I prob won't do 1/3 of them, but I have a bunch of my favs saved now :)

But you can politely yet sharply request they get along or move along. 

That's a good quote I need to remember!  I hope I don't need it for my "studying virtual" at home college student!!

Whew!  I think I won't need to use it.  We got more information about his spring semester and dates.  Even though they've cut out spring break week to minimize students traveling away from campus and back (to minimize "outside" exposure to C-19 and bring it back) DJ is definitely planning to return campus for the spring semester.  So I'll not likely have to use the comment!
